Root Cause
HyperDP can only support "virtualized" DataStore backup, if the VM disk belongs to "non-virtualized" DataStore,the backup task can't successfully executed.

Remove the non-virtualized VMs from the backup policy,then excute the policy again.
Suggestions
When creating the backup policy,make sure the VM disk datastore type is virtualized.
